Down 3 lbs today to 155.2 - Aunt Flo and Sodium are EVIL! I hope the acupuncture nutritionist has some ideas Thursday (other than zero carbs which I am not going to do) or maybe the herbs will kick in soon and I will start really losing. The only people that really seem to get it are people struggling with similar issues and it is frustrating. But I know I am ok where I am at and my health is more important so I am on the right track. I am down for the year but still need to try and lose 2 lbs this month, I did 20k steps yesterday instead of 15 and need to do more strength. I love strength but had to cut back due to my tennis elbow which is better but still hurts if I do too much. I do lower body and what I can without hurting though. Now of my metabolism kicks in!
"Many middle-aged people with excess fat in the abdominal area have a "fatty liver". In this condition the liver has stopped burning fat and has turned into a fat storing organ. It becomes enlarged and swollen with greasy deposits of fatty tissue. Those with a fatty liver will not be able to lose weight unless they first improve liver function, with a Liver Cleansing Diet and a good liver tonic. If you have a fatty liver it is vital to be patient, as it can take between 3 and 12 months, depending upon the amount of fat deposited in the liver, to remove the excess fat from the liver. After this accumulated liver fat has been removed, weight loss will occur easily."
Here is hoping. I do not eat a high fat diet, my cholesterol is only 123 which is low but I think stress has been a factor with this. I do feel I am healing though but still do have some liver pain.
